The perils of Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman! Simply put, it's the one time in the history of mainstream entertainment as far as I know , when everything came together. A beautiful woman playing a sexy superheroine was knocked out, tied up, or put in peril in practically every other episode And it happened on broadcast television. There is an almost shameless eroticism in Wonder Woman that is completely lacking in most superheroine films today, even perhaps especially those that have been made specifically for the superheroine peril crowd. Which is kind of odd, because the show was made in the 70's, and seemingly for a broad audience. By the standards of , the show is spectacularly innocent, with nary a scene of violence or explicit sexuality. Yet you will rarely find a superheroine peril fan who will not attest to the life changing pleasures of watching Lynda Carter being chloroformed in "Fausta, the Nazi Wonder Woman," or gassed and rendered unconscious in "Baroness Von Gunther.
